How Is Your
School Spirit?
To have good school spirit one
does not have to be a cheerlead
er, or be in the band, but one
must be co-operative and create
some sc-hool projects that will
make school life more enjoyable.
To know whether or not you
have any school spirit ask your
self the following questions:
Do I stay in line in the cafe
teria without breaking or push
Do I direct the visitors, or lost
students around thee school?
Am I courteous to visitors?
Do I offer to help clean up
after school parties?
Do I lend a helping hand?
Do I participate in at least
one extra curricular activity?
Do I belong to at least one
committee to help clean up a-
round the school building?
Do I behave myself well at
all school programs?
An affirmative answer to the
question will help acquire the
right school spirit.
